As pretty as it is named. The scene worth all the flights of stairs. Not very dark, but if you want to explore the limestone cave beyond (at own risk), you'll need a torchlight. It is not far from wind cave, but it is out of the range of walking distance. The buses are less reliable, there are vans that... More

Beautiful stalactites and stalagmites that are picture-worthy. At the end of the cave trail, there will be light streaming in through an opening atop the cave, which makes for beautiful pictures. However, take note that it is pretty dark and some of the steps are narrow & slippery. Advisable to wear proper sports shoes and if possible, carry a small... More

It's a beautiful cave. I enjoyed it very much except for the slippery floor. Get yourself a pair of good slippery resistance shoes, so that you can truly enjoy the cave without keep on being cautious for every steps.

We went here when it was pouring down rain! Luckily for us, this ended up being to our advantage. The cave was still very much open to the public, and there was no one else there which made it even more enchanting and magical! Be careful though in the rain and make sure you wear shoes with a good grip... More

Nature at its best. Every cave is unique and comes with their own features and character, and this one has its charm and is certainly worth visiting. Do take time to explore it and appreciate the beautiful structures within. be prepared to climb some stairs. Just want to point out that I did see little wastes thrown on the ground... More

beautiful piece of nature. If you are in the area, you are silly NOT to check this place out. Tips: - bring water - I paid a taxi 160 ringgits (about $40 USD) to drive me here from downtown kuching, wait two hours while I explored, then drive me to wind cave, wait another hour, and then drive me back...

This is a very special place to visit and a must do when in Kuching. Beautiful and very unique caves. You can also visit the wind caves but the fairy caves are much nicer and more interesting.

The climb is pretty easy going although on a rainy day you have to take extra care as the steps maybe slippery. Once you're in the cave you will be treated to an amazing view; the cave is quite wide and extends further in but that area is not lit and we were not allowed to travel that route. From... More

What a beautiful cave! We went there by taxi without a guide, payed 10 ringgit entrance fee. After climbing some stairs, you'll reach the entrance to the cave. There was no flashlight needed. For the tall people: only the first stairs after the entrance are in a small area. After those stairs you'll see a breathtaking view of cave, nature... More
